I always thought it was, 'he who laughs last, laughs loudest' but my SO insists it is definitely, 'he who laughs last, laughs loudest'.

I don't see any disagreement there, dody!

Meanwhile, guest, shall the first be the last?

Well, I see that the preferred version up here has a slight lead, even if it's a statitistically insignifcant one.

He who laughs last laughs' last. (the order of the laugh implies an enduring quality)

G*d forbid I may have put the apostrophe in the wrong spot... [ducking and running for cover-e]
